Sounds like "another one", a very expensive white shoes coastline bus 
tour. Time to summon the official resident P.I. PC junkyard dog to check 
them out and write a letter. This is ridiculous and the very thing that 
should not happen; promoters making huge bucks off "permaculture" 
tourism without having any of the required credentials. This type of 
thing could take root and really have a negative effect on the public 
view of the permaculture movement. Mitch's experience is testament to this.
